This weeks birding has been somewhat interrupted by visits, visits to hospitals, visits to garages and so on but I've managed to get in a few visits to local birding spots. The visit to Mill pool, Alvecote was quite rewarding with a couple of elusive Common Redstarts, one adult male and one juvenile, 2 Little Egrets and a single Chiffchaff.

A walk around Caldecote was less rewarding although a number of Willow warblers were around the Hawthorns near the canal. A couple of worn adultYellow Wagtails were in the recently harvested Rape field with a few Reed Buntings and small group (6) of Linnets were also seen.
